The office is such a lovely environment to be in and a world away from me perching my laptop on a small table at Starbucks. My enthusiasm for Innovation Connect is endless. It's helped me immensely to put a pipeline dream into a reality. It’s a nourishing and inspiring hub where I've experienced incredible productivity.
